Benjamin Franklin famously said that “in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” Unfortunately this certainty doesn’t extend to the availability of tax forms at the library. While many of you have been coming to the library to get copies of federal and state tax forms, there have been recent changes to the supply of forms that we will get this tax season.
Federal Tax Forms
UPDATE 2/26/15: We have received the Federal 1040 and 1040A forms. These are available at our Reference Desk on the second floor. We expect to get a shipment of the 1040EZ forms soon.
Unfortunately we will not be receiving any additional schedules or the instruction booklets. This is because the “IRS appropriations were significantly cut in the 2015 Omnibus Appropriations bill recently passed by Congress.” (IRS TFOP Alert Message 6, 1/9/2015).
You can request to have tax forms mailed to you by visiting irs.gov/orderforms or by calling 1-800-829-3676. You can also download and print forms from the IRS website by visiting irs.gov/forms. Forms can be printed at the library for $0.15 per page.
State Tax Forms
You can pick up your copy of the Massachusetts state income tax form (resident or non-resident) at our Reference Desk on the second floor. You can also request to have state tax forms mailed to you by calling 1-800-392-6089, or download and print forms from the Department of Revenue website by visiting mass.gov/dor/forms. Forms can be printed at the library for $0.15 per page.
